Convocation Information

Graduating Class of 2018, in the stands within the UIC Pavilion, with Honors College deans and faculty seated in the front row

Each spring, the Honors College hosts the Honors College Convocation, a formal and personal way to acknowledge the success of graduating seniors each spring semester. At the ceremony, students wear their commencement robes, and receive their gold stoles and a certificate of achievement. A leading scholar and an Honors College graduating senior are asked to speak.

In the fall, the Honors College recognizes its graduates with an informal graduation celebration, where graduates can recieve their stoles and certificates.
